Bivar's Design Center Solutions Business Unit has introduced a 1W LED Block series designed for use in industrial, automotive, architectural, backlighting and intense single or multiple lighting applications.

The B3 Series Hi-Brite Block (patent pending) is designed to enable a choice of three different spot light lenses from Cree and Fraen, or optional low profile diffused lenses and flood light lens styles.

The LEDs are surface mounted onto a miniature internal PCB and assembled in either a low-profile base for diffused or flood lighting, or a modular base with power options, including direct drive or integrated DC/DC current regulator (optional AC/DC wall mount adapters available). Optional wire length and connector styles are available. According to Bivar, this design enables high intensity illumination in a self-contained and powered unit. A choice of mountings include interlocking, mounting tab or quick-mount adhesive backing for installation simplicity, and all are suitable for creating a grid or in-line arrays to suit size and display needs.

Each Hi-Brite Block unit is provided in a compact, 1-by-1-inch footprint, enabling ease of implementation while reducing the time to market constraints associated with non-integrated offerings.

Thomas Silber, president and CEO of Bivar, stated, "The B3 Series demonstrates a new versatility within our Design Center Solutions Business Unit that will help customers more easily and cost-effectively incorporate the latest LED technology into new product designs."

The Hi-Brite Block B3 Series is priced from $18 each in production quantities. Standard units will be immediately available from stock. Custom housing configurations, lenses, or multi-light assemblies are also available.
